”Blackbirds tend to like shiny things.” ~ The Bloody Raven
Yes, it’s Saturday which means this next beauty has to be under #silverpornsaturday.
I wrote a similar post two years ago in my earlier Steemit days titled; Do Vampires fear silver? featuring the Vampy dentures collaboration made by @mr-vulcan and as a gift from @silver-vessel. Since then I had plenty of fun with them.
This time, I’m Leveling Up like a beast!
And speaking of Beast… The #silverpornsaturday tag is the birth child of @silverd510 ‘s machinations to take over the block chain world one salacious post at a time. So forget those chains, whips, leathers and fishnet stockings and show us your sexy silver as it was as natural as the day it was born in the heart of a local Supernova.
Now on to the Silver!
If you have been following me since the beginning you know I like stories. Especially, writing fiction around my collection of Poured Silver and old silver coins from around the world representing past decades and even centuries. How else could I write about my alter ego than from the perspective of a long lived Vampire-like figure.
My character begins as Taska Menine, a 12 year old daughter of a 15th century Khazarian lord. Whose family were horribly murdered in an act of betrayal. She was sold into slavery yet later acquires the abilities of a Night Walker Vampire by a direct descendant of the first Vampire, Ambrogio.
Adopted by Giovanni Auditore Da Firenze she is taught the art of assassination and learns of various martial arts in the following years but also found herself on an eternal mission of acquiring cursed silver artifacts. In the late 18th century she becomes known as the Pirate called The Bloody Raven.
Believe me, I am not the only one. You will find them, or they will find you my dear child. If you seek safety, find the others of Ravnos clan and they may take you in.” ~ Machel the Despised
I came across an interesting article in Psychology Today; Supernatural Stimuli: Why women like Vampires. It does hit close to the mark from my own point of view and the Authors Jaime Krems and David Lundberg do make quite a rational view from an Evolutionary perspective. I have yet to find a study from the perspective from a Vampiress to sink my fangs into. Never the less I’ll pick out some of the juicy parts.
Vampires have the advantage of being able to live forever. So, they have thousands of years to acquire resources. From Dracula’s massive Transylvanian castle to the Cullens’ sprawling modern mansion, most vampires don’t live like paupers. And their immortality allows them to maintain a youthful appearance, so the women who fall for them don’t have to choose between a guy with resources and a guy with healthy youthful features.
With their supernatural strength, accrued wisdom, ability to withstand any physical attack other than a direct blow to the heart, vampires easily overtake most mere mortals. Even their large canine teeth may help – these are reliable cues of male dominance in the mammalian world.
vampires are quite charming, polite but direct with women, and they are often sought by multiple other females, demonstrating high mate value through the principal of social proof.
To summarize: Vampires not only possess the cues that play into women’s evolved preferences, but they have them in supernormal proportions.
Again, from what a woman looks for in a prospective vampire partner.
What does a man look for in a Vampress? I believe it could be for witty conversation but I think I will leave that for another Gothic styled stacking article.
It’s way past Halloween but I hope you got your thrill, Thank you for stopping by my Post today.
